    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to hide, and decent ability to take time off.

    Cons

    Little to no differentiation among talent. Bar is so low, you could trip over it. Constantly reducing benefits and no increase in wages while top mgmt continued to increase pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to folks on the ground level that have to implement the policies and goals from on high. Treat employees with greater respect and offer true career paths.

    Pros

    Get to work with really great and smart coworkers. We get to work on and make some amazing products.

    Cons

    Aging workforce. Hard to find peers my age. Benefits get worse each year. More jobs are offshored each year. While our stock doubled our wages were held stagnant and promotions did not occur in my department. All the best people that I worked with have left the company for better opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need promotions, raises and career growth opportunities

    Pros

    Increased knowledge to move on in my career.

    Cons

    CEO, upper management, pay, highest insurance in my 20+ years of working another way CEO is pocketing money and taking from the hard working blue collar employees. Not sure how he sleeps at night

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside to see that pay is lower than other companies. Reduce health care cost to keep employees.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    in a good, high entry criteria industry

    Cons

    short sighted executives, who are not qualified, not even with knowledge of what they are responsible for. Got the jobs just because they are the buddies of CEO. Not respect subordinates.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trying hard, but no real idea where they are going

    Cons

    no benefits, not care for morale or people
    Company makes tons of money, but gives 2% raises and 1/2 the merit. messages to employee's is really confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look farther than tomorrow, what is the long term plan, and how can it be profitable, if everything we do has no margin. Stop changing the goal, and let us just do something for once, all the way to the end.

    Pros

    Very Large
    Very Global
    Very top Down
    Benefits OK
    Compensation - Great

    Cons

    Nothing runs well and no one lies they just don't tell you anything. Their is a large sense of being just a cog in a very big disorganized mess. Lots of mangers but no leaders. Just a get by and kiss the right people kind of company.
    A total top down manager style disconnected with any operation concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are going to still need to treat WORKER as HUMANS. Not just revenue requirements.

    Pros

    Honeywell makes a lot of money, hence it is known as “Moneywell” in most circles, but it offers nothing of substance. Recently the president D&S said he wanted more “STICKY” sales, meaning stick it to the customers buy selling them something they have to keep coming back to us to keep working. Margins are the only important factor to Honeywell leadership, at all costs, thus we get paid a lot, but at what cost to our integrity.

    Cons

    They emphasize profits way too much, they are greedy and try to make too much product and thus they don’t have any core competencies, they don’t know what they want to be when they grow up. They specialize in nothing and sell everything, but the product is late, poor quality and ultimately too highly priced. The op income for Honeywell is over 24%, so for anyone who is a taxpayer, you can understand why aircraft cost so much and your tax dollars are going through the roof. They outsource everything, if it wasn't for security concerns on some programs, Honeywell leadership would send all of its jobs overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Show integrity, don't tell your people to increase sales and ask for insane margins while telling the world that the government needs to get their budget in line. Help you people to execute the programs they have, not tell them to go sell more and forget about executing. Customers do not want to come back to Honeywell when they see we cannot execute on what we have. New business shys aways from us becasue we can't execute. You cannot execute operations in the US from overseas, and that is what you do when you outsource all your work…

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Tough to think of many. Time off policies were dealt with locally, through your own manager. Flexible work schedule was nice to have

    Cons

    Poor Management. Upper Management uses this facility as a springboard to other divisions. Outsourcing jobs overseas, leading to a lot of 'brain drain'. No direction for the future. Pay scale is terrible. Benefits are non-existent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest yourself into the business and treat your people better

    Pros

    Large market share and working capital leads to some stability. Good place to be a number that earns a paycheck with no real performance expectations.

    Cons

    Leaders forsake employees and company best interest to get ahead. Benefits far below industry average. Little to no employee empowerment.

    Pros

    new building to work in, if you get in the right group you could go far, if you like meetings this is the place for you, partially matched 401K, insurance offered,

    Cons

    too many meetings, not worker friendly, wait in line to go to the bathroom, terrible children like rules like tape outlining on floors and tables where to put things, culture derived from 50 year old principals instituted in Japan, too many layers of management, can be friction at times between union hourly/Honeywell salary/independent contract workers, 9 block system for salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    seriously? why bother telling management anything? they'll listen. . .one ear and out the other
